This photo is a bit deceptive as it makes this King Kong figure look small. Make no mistake though, this figure is big, and heavy! It stands at 9″ tall and weighs almost two pounds! Kong is bursting free from his “chrome steel” shackles and snatches up Ann Darrow (Faye Wray) before wreaking havoc in the streets of New York. What a great figure!
This King Kong figure is from McFarlane Toys’ Movie Maniac series, released in 2003.
McFarlane Toys has a reputation for producing finely-detailed “action” figures, with minimal articulation. This figure has shoulders, hips, and one elbow that move, but it looks fierce on the shelf. The Ann Darrow figure can be held in Kong’s right hand or stand in fear on her own.
The detail in the hair and features of Kong are impressive.
How would you like to wake up to that sight every morning?
“Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.” All month long, I will be showing off King Kong collectibles from my personal collection in a series called KONGTOBER, so if you’re a fan of King Kong and movie monsters, I think you’re going to like what you see.
